Hi, I am Maggie. And this is my current situation.. May 30th 2016, I was diagnosed with flu type B. I was given tamiflu and promethozine... Neither I had taken before...( before all this I had mild anxiety but was able to function without meds) I was Leary about taking them. But I did... I was on them 48 hrs before I noticed sensitivity to light. A dull pain in the right side of my head. I would wear my sunglasses in the house to watch the tv...so I quit taking the meds...with in a few hours I had a racing heart, sweaty palms, and vertigo..I went into a full panic attack... Took my fiancé over an hour to get me calm enough to even sleep. The next day I woke up about 2:30pm...I felt way off...but I tried to push the it. By 6pm I was back in bed with my feet propped up...a nasty bout of vertigo... And more panic...because neither my fiancé and I felt safe leaving me home alone, while he worked..(correctional officer/12 hr shifts) so the next day I went to a friends house...I was extremely dizzy, weak, had derealization ( the movie feeling) I couldn't eat, I tried to drink.. I ended up having my monthly at this time..noticed aches in my back..I usually have back cramps during this ,so thought nothing much of it. Later that Sunday morning I had a major panic attack and my friend took me to the hospital... I was feeling like I had pneumonia again which I developed pericarditis as a side ailments so I was quite scared... Racing heart, sweaty palms... Feet sweating despite freezing cold...if I covered up, I would get flush have to uncover, uncover get cold..vicious cycle...went through the gauntlet... IV, EKG, blood test..I was told that I was still fighting the flu and my potassium was low. Given potassium pills and was discharged... Fast forward to June 26th 2016..I had been in this same and worsened condition for 3 weeks and 3 days...i am stubborn.. I hate hospitals and meds...must mention here I am extremely sensitive to medications..and I don't like taking them...I endured the gauntlet... Blood drawn, IV (took 3 different nurses and 5 pokes and blown veins to get the IV in...my anxiety was a major factor considering the circumstances) urine sample. When giving the urine before testit I could see cloudiness so I was pretty sure it was a factor. The result came back that I was fighting a uti! So I was given rocephin in my IV. Sat for an hour..mild nausea and slight dizziness.. But it wore off. When discharged I felt quitting a bit better but not enough... Was given cipro..took one dose and I couldn't handle it. Threw me into a panic attack.. As well as made me feel lethargic and I couldn't keep up a conversion. So called the pharmacy, said sounded like an allergic reaction. So I made an appt with my gp but they had no opening until the 19th of July!!! ( technically a new patients cuz of my Medicaid) so only option was t go back to the hospital... Either go through the gauntlet again or see if my script could be changed...thankfully I got it changed...I was given Bactrim. 2 times a day for 5 days 10 tablets.. And the first dose was mild...by the second dose..5 hours in my heart took off racing, hands and feet sweating and cold. I felt I couldn't breath, dizzy...it scared me...I endured 6 doses of that mess! Til I couldn't deal any more. By this time I couldn't taste or smell things like I could before, constant palpitations, constant headache dull and annoying..still light sensitive.. Hands and feet sweating and cold.. I tried to eat but certain things I just couldn't endure..( note: due to past experience with pericarditis I quit all caffeine.. Soda and chocolate) I couldn't endure sweets..I started feeling sluggish and run down even further..my panic attacks were constant... I knew there was more wrong with me...so went BACK to the hospital... This time I had to me ativan'ed...but before went I was discussing my problems the nurse pulled up my charts...now the last time I went through the gauntlet everything checked out except the uti..she felt that it was all my anxiety and sensitivity to the meds. But would run tests again to make sure the uti was gone...by the time results came in I was knocked out..I had to be talked in to the ativan... My drug sensitivity is that bad..( later looking through my discharge papers.. In was given 1 mg of ativan and I don't remember leaving and going home. My fiancé had to tell me what happened) according to my fiancé my labs were clear...I really don't know..but since then I have developed into a monster as it were...I have developed a ravenous appetite.. Have to eat every few hours on the dot..or I get shaky, and flush, and I still have issues with my heart racing and headache, sensitive to light, thirsty..I can't sleep..and when I do its only a short time.. Then I have to eat again..its like my food is evaporating in my stomach! I can barely get out of bed. I have to be helped to the restroom.. I have to have a friend stay with me when my fiancé is at work so if something happens there will be some one here...I feel like I am going out of my mind, I have listened to more then my fair share of relaxing music I like Enya but for crying out loud. I have not hardly been out of my house my derealization makes everything seem unreal..now fast forward to Monday August 8th 2016...after 2 failed attempts to see my Dr. By the time I get in the back my anxiety is out of control... The nurse some what calmed but not enough.. My fiancé had to do most of the talking... In was so terrified.. The nurse typed everything down..she have me a hemoglobin test and a sugar test...she said I was not anemic.. And my sugar was at that time 110..dunno if that's good.. And I had to take urine test..Dr comes in.. And we again explained my issues.. But he was more concerned with my anxiety... I am assuming he thinks this is all my anxiety like the hospital did...but he wanted labs..so i did my pee sample..i saw it was clear..not like water..it was your standard apple juice color but I didn't see cloudiness.. But that still doesn't mean something is there...and I had to prepare for blood draw... Immediately I tripped out crying and shaking...but I endured.. Felt like passing out...later my fiancé said they filled like 9 vials...I only remember seeing 5 and for once I got someone who knows how to stick a vein! No blown veins and 0% bruising!.. But the Dr. Comes in with prescriptions... For paxil 20gm once a day...and generic for. Klotopin (however its spelled) 0.5 2 times a day...60ct..Dr feels due to certain things in my life past and present and stress I have General Anxiety Disorder and PTSD. When i got home afterwards i felt so drained...and like an idiot..because if this is all my anxiety, i feel dumb for letting it take me over like this...but i am convinced I have a serious issue...For the first 2 days of having these..I admit I didn't take them..this stuff scares me cuz it messes with your brain! I like to be clear headed..but I am fogged up with derealization...and panic...I was a vibrant person..now turned into slush..and crying and scared all the time..I can barely handle sittings on my own couch without feeling fatigued and uncomfortable.. But 3/days ago I took my first dose of paxil..now Dr said I could break them if 20mg was too much..so I did..I had to 4th them...0.5 First dose went fairly smooth of course I read up on it I know it has certain effects..headache, nausea, vomiting, dizzy, panic.. Prepared..but the next 2 doses...were even worse..I felt blah..I could stare off into space easy..just felt not all there..I did have the above stuff listed..but last night I felt like I was or could claw out of my skin! I had intermittent crying spells and felt scared. I didn't want to sleep! And dizzy omg..can't take it. The other med Dr said was like ativan.. Um..yeah I could barely take that..so even though its low dose..it would knock me out..I have never taken these drugs and I am afraid of them..I don't want to take something that will end up killing me...now I know this was suppose to be about Bactrim but I felt compelled to get the whole ordeal out. Maybe someone else has or is going through what I am and have been now going on 3 months...I am waiting on my blood and urine results..and done a lot of net searches...siking myself out too along the way as to what I have...I have come to 2 diagnosis. Thyroid or diabetes.. But don't know for sure til I get my results... I am so gonna fall apart if he tells me "I am normal" what I am going thru is not normal!!! And its not solely anxiety driven... Sorry so long...but that is my story...I hope someone respond with some information or possibility.. Thank you for reading.
